Title Page571
Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME of American Fork, who changed its name to the Springville Beacon. Don Carlos and his son retained the commercial printing department, but didn't rebuild it after a fire destroyed the building and virtually all of the newspaper files in June, 1924. Married to Lyda M. Boyer on November 29,1869, he was the father of three children: sons Don C. and A. Gus and daughter Catherine (Mrs. Arnold Hines). A. Gus Johnson, who lives in Springville, is the sole survivor of the family. Following the death of Don Carlos Johnson on July 17, 1931, the Springville Herald, which had subsequently become the community's newspaper, said in its July 23, 1931 edition: "In the passing of Don C. Johnson, Springville parts with a man whose life was dedicated to the welfare of his loved ones and his fellowmen - to the building of a greater commonwealth. "During his long life here he faced many vicissitudes incident to pioneer life, and to bringing about better living conditions for himself and his fellowmen. No sacrifice seemed too great for him to make in the early days when the sturdy manhood of every Utah community was enlisted in combatting the onslaughts of the Redman, and in other tedious tasks that called for stamina and hard work. "In his declining years it gave him much pleasure to reflect on those trying times and compare them with the life of luxury most people live today. "Through it all Don Carlos Johnson played the part of a true gentleman. Through it all a supreme love of truth, a lofty and generous patriotism, a forgetfulness of self, moral courage, personal fearlessness, absolute sincerity, characterized his life. These, with an intense love of humanity, constituted the basis of his character, which will ever be resplendent in that galaxy of pioneers whose deeds will ever stand as a monument in the early history of this state. "Havingpassed that milestone in life where ambition spurs one on to greater accomplishments, he felt that his life's work was complete, and oftentimes was heard to say that he was ready to meet his Maker, and that if he could but pass peacefully nothing would be sweeter to him. 571
